to establish psuedo-historical authenticity seems rather superfluous here

Perhaps, but then I suspect you can say that about pretty much every choice I've made when taken in isolation. All I can say is that I try to aim for the mediocra firma!

The term Padiraja rather suggests some blending of Indian and Persian characteristics the culture of the Fanim. Is that a valid assumption?

Sounds fair to me! though personally, I'm not too keen on laying down canonical association-sets for my readers - or pronunciations for that matter. Afterall, it is pseudohistorical authenticity I'm trying to conjure. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Do the names of your characters and places have meanings in their own languages?

Many place names are descriptive/incident names in other languages. Most of these will be given in the Encyclopaedic Glossary. view post
